Camden,
New Jersey,
U. S. A.
October 25th, 1877.

I send to-day to same address as this card, one L of G, one T[wo] R[ivulets], and four copies Dem[ocratic] Vistas.1

I am pretty well and getting along as usual. I saw the G[ilchrist]s last evening.2 They are well.

If you want another copy or two, send me word, and write when you can.


W. W.
